Tiffany Haddish Responds With Grace After Katt Williams Disses Her Rise To Stardom

Emmy-award winner Tiffany Haddish recently had beef with accompanying Emmy-award winner and comedian, Katt Williams. The Girls Trip star handled the response with grace, while many would have taken out their frustrations in an incredibly public way.

In a recent interview, Williams discussed Haddish’s sudden rise to fame, saying:

[Haddish has] been doing comedy since she was 16. You can’t tell me your favorite Tiffany Haddish joke. Why? Because she ain’t done a tour yet. She ain’t done a special. She has not proven the ability to tell jokes, back to back for an hour…Did you think she wrote Girls Trip, goofball? Or do you think that was already a script and they handed it to her? It’s up to you whatever you want to believe.”

Anyone would have thrown shade right back at Williams for his comments, that wasn’t Haddish’s way. Instead she took the high road, responding with love and support:

Haddish received support from her fellow comedian, Kevin Hart, who posted a video to his Instagram page:

“I have to embrace my sister when other people are choosing to frown and make an attempt to shit on my sister’s bright light. I choose to turn up the knob and make that light brighter.”


People then took to Twitter to post their support of Haddish:

Haddish has a new Netflix special filming in early 2019, while her first stand-up special, Showtime’s “Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood,” debuted last year.
